“My Life Has Become Full With Jesus’ Love” – Mykolaiv, Ukraine

When you are a young, energetic person, you serve yourself. You make a career, concentrate on material objects and worry about earthy and sinful things. When you live this way, the best years of your life pass by. That was true for me. When maturity finally came to me, I felt drawn to God and was overwhelmed with a sense of spiritual starvation.
One day, by chance, I switched on the TV to a Christian channel where a sermon was on. I became interested. I watched all the programmes on that channel with excitement. This included Bible study classes, sermons and so on. I became interested in the Bible. After that, they sent me Bible study courses, and I started studying them.
Then, the Lord sent me people who were acquainted with the church that owned the TV channel. I understood, ‘It is my church!”
Some time later a preacher from Australia and a GNU pastor visited us with an evangelistic programme. I did not miss a meeting. During the two weeks, they talked about the Bible stories about Jesus Christ, about the creation of the world in regards to our reality, about good and evil, and about many other things which touched everybody’s feelings.
I thank my great God that he has made me free from the burden of a busy, sinful life
At the end of those evangelistic meetings they invited those who wished to be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ, and I did not doubt but with joy accepted the invitation. I thought, ‘God has called me!’ I was baptised, and that was the best day of my life.
Now, I am with Lord Jesus Christ, and I have a new heart, new thoughts and a new life. My life has become full with Jesus’ love. That is why every morning, during the daytime and when going to bed, I thank my great God that he has made me free from the burden of a busy, sinful life. I have seen the world with God’s eyes. This world has become unspeakably beautiful for me because I felt his love when he touched me. Praise God! Amen!
The Lord has called me!
